    I know open carry is legal in some states but I would think NOT making yourself the first target for a shooter who has the advantage of knowing they are going to try and shoot someone would be better. I would rather concealed carry and be able to surprise them, rather than the other way around.

    I think that to safely open carry, you would have to be holding the weapon and be scanning for trouble so you are ready to bring it into action. Sort of like being on guard.

    I suppose if everyone in a state is doing it then the playing field is relatively even.

    I was trying to find a news report but couldn’t. A few years ago, might’ve been in Breitbart. A perp tried armed robbery in a store in Texas. There were six other customers in the store…all six of which drew and shot the perp. It was the most Texan incident of all time.

    Sadly in this day of search engine censorship I couldn’t find the story though.

    There was a video on YouTube several years ago of a couple of armed robbers attempting to hold up a gun or sporting goods store in the U.S.
    The store owner pulled a great big revolver from out of its hiding place and shot one dead.
    The other guy fled for his life.

    What is an “assault” rifle? In the 1700s, it was a smoothbore musket. By the mid-1870s, a rifled musket. Then a single-shot rifle a few years later. Then a magazine rifle before the turn of the century. By the 1950s semi-automatic rifles were in vogue among many armies. Now select fire (semi-auto, burst, or full auto) seem to be common.

    Most anti-gun types seem to think appearance (looks military) is the defining characteristic. If that is so, then is a pink AR-15 different to a black one?

    PS, an AR-15 as produced is semi-automatic, one shot per trigger pull.

    What is an “assault” rifle?

    Anything smaller, lighter and more manauverable than a battle rifle, is categorized as an assault rifle.

    It’s about the circumstances and the specific tactics … if you are mostly staying in that same spot and want to macimize range, accuracy and damage then you want a battle rifle. On the other hand if you expect to be moving around and running a lot, you probably want something light and easy to carry, even if it has limited range and does not hit as hard.

    The Gun Shop at Margate had a sign-
    Nothing in this shop is worth the cost of your life

    Ethnicity of the Perps isn’t stated, but it sounds like Guy 1 was on the way to a Robbery or worse when Guy 2 rudely interrupted him.
    So, it’s kinda beyond a reasonable doubt that both guys are … aspiring Rappers.

    But that is not the context in which the term is used in the 2nd Amendment fights in the US. Once again, the fascist left is perverting language for a political objective (which was the point I was trying to make).

  9. Petros says:

    The helpful thing is that anyone who calls these weapons assault rifles shows that they don’t know much about firearms.

  10. False Equivalence says:

    Petros, then I think you will find a lot of uninformed people in the military.

  11. Boambee John says:


    I suspect that Petros was talking about the AR-15 and similar rifles sold on the civilian market. They are not the same as the M-16, the AK-47 and later versions, or the Steyr used here. Try not to show your ignorance.

  12. Entropy says:

    Well if I was planning on assaulting something, say an entrenched position of the enemy, I would be going for a bloody big round and a high rate of fire.

  13. Boambee John says:


    Surely a small round and semi-auto would be more than sufficient? /sarc?

  14. Entropy says:

    I wouldn’t be turning up for the macrame competition.

    Good one. Furthermore, were either of them “gentle giants”?
